It's bad enough that I got hit by a line drive on Friday and have a nasty contusion on my hand. But then I sit through 12 innings only to watch Tomko lose the game. Tomko who is 1-6. Tomko who can turn a 6 run lead into a save opportunity (see Thursday's game). Last night hurt. It really did.

Since I can only type with one hand I'll just give you the photos.

I am thinking blue. I really am. I've been to 4 Dodger games in 4 days. And they only won 1 of them. And I broke a toe and got a contusion as a result. Dodgers, WHY CAN'T YOU WIN?

Peavy vs. Penny. Matchup of the year. Proved to be a pitcher's dual... 1-1 into the 12th inning.

Nomar hit his second home run of the year, which was great to see.

The crowd had a great energy well into the 12th inning...

These jackasses started the BEAT LA chant and were waving their Padres jerseys. Security came to shut them up before a fight broke out.

All photos by Malingering, who had to balance the camera on her knees to try to get these shots thanks to the hand so that's why they're not that great.
